Kama Ayurveda Neem, Tulsi, Tea Tree BODY SCRUB

Mar 26, 2019



I purchased this along with Kama Ayurveda Neem Tulsi, Tea Tree Foaming Cleanser. I am a pro scrub person. The chemical exfoliation things that just started to seep into my brain from last year. But, I am still a physical exfoliator girl, especially for the body. Especially in winter when your skin cannot shed away the dry, flaky dead skin since you are not sweating. It is almost impossible to no like a scrub for me.






Price: Rs 1495 for 200ml. Expensive than The Body Shop and Bath & Body Works scrubs.

Fragrance: This has almost no smell which makes way for the body lotion/oil/perfume to highlight. Good choice for people with a sensitive nose.




Ingredients: The most interesting part :) 

Aqua, Juglans Regia Shell Powder, Sodium Lauroyl Sarcosinate, Sorbitol, Sodium Cocoyl Glutamate, Disodium Cocoyl Glutamate, Xanthan Gum, Phenoxyethanol, Sodium Gluconate, Parfum, Calendula Officinalis Flower Extract, Melaleuca Alternifolia Leaf Extract, Ocimum Basilicum Leaf Extract, Citric Acid.

Unlike their foaming cleaner, I was not expecting the active ingredient on the top but I at least found one of my favorites second in the list - Walnut shell powder. In the end, (after perfume!), it has calendula extract, tea tree extract, and basil. Not tulsi (Ocimum tenuiflorum) but, Basil (Ocimum Basilicum). Where is the neem you ask me? Even I am searching. I cannot see neem in the ingredients list

Let's not even start the discussion on the Phenoxyethanol. It is used as a preservative but most countries do not allow them in more than 1% percentage of the formula. Let's say the percentage is less than 1% then guess how much is the percentage of the 'exacts' mentioned in the very end of the ingredients list but on the top of the retail name!

I am leaving the discussion with -ate in the ingredients for you. I rest my case here.

I really hope they made a huge mistake here or they are just taking the people for granted. 




Now, don't let the ingredients list break your heart. It is not a bad scrub in any way. It is foaming but still manages to exfoliate really well. I started using it in the last week of January and it almost about to get over. First, I used Kama Ayurveda Neem oil as body oil and this as a scrub. My skin feels smoother than never before. It is loaded with walnut shell. You can see the shell particles in the runoff water. Even when used directly on the skin, it is only mildly drying. I am not going to deduct points here because my skin is on the dried side during winters.




Overall: A good scrub with a huge price tag with an awkward ingredients list. Not a highly recommended product nor will I repurchase.

Love,
